Ah ha. A bulb just lite up. Even a single empty space will change my checksum. I think it finally clicked guys.
Well, the name of the file won't affect the checksum, but the nandroid-mobile.sh script's ability to actually identify your Nandroid backup files will.
When the custom recovery invokes the nandroid-mobile.sh script, it passes the name of the Nandroid backup directory via a shell command line and a space character will cause the filename to be parsed as separate pieces (i.e., your filename will actually appear short to the nandroid-mobile.sh script and he won't be able to actually do the comparison). His reporting of the error is obviously not as precise as it should be.
Make sense? Sorry for stringing this out for so long, but at least we got to "meet" a fellow Android user and discuss the merits of MD5 checksums
